SPACE+ART AUCTION RAISES FUNDS FOR NON-PROFIT ASTROACCESS


Park City, Utah, November 17, 2022 – NRP Stone, Inc. (Symbol: NRPI)





Uplift Aerospace (NRP Stone - Symbol: NRPI) is honoured to announce that they will be holding the Space+Art Auction during Art Basel to raise funds for AstroAccess on November 30, 2022 at The Powerhouse Miami. Uplift’s private space program, Space+, will be exhibiting and auctioning unique artworks created in microgravity by top artists and in collaboration with astronaut trainees during the Space+5 commercial astronaut training program.


During the Space+5 mission, Rob Prior, Gabe Weis, Raven Trammell, and Dr. Sian Proctor participated in commercial astronaut training to create artwork that will be auctioned at Art Basel and donated to AstroAccess as the official philanthropic beneficiary of the Space+5 mission, with all of the proceeds going to support their mission of increasing disability inclusion in space.


The first phase of the Space+5 training took place on October 23rd when the crew flew on a ZeroG flight at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The five Space+ astronaut candidates flew in microgravity with commercial astronaut and artist Dr. Sian Proctor, artist and producer Rob Prior, mixed-media and NFT artist Gabe Weis, and photographer Raven Trammel. The flight’s objectives were to explore art creation in microgravity environments as well as to prepare the astronaut candidates for moving and working in a weightless environment and gathering scientific data for human health and fitness.


From November 18-21 this year, the Space+5 completed a world first commercial astronaut training including individuals with disabilities at the University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 in Tucson, Arizona with three AstroAccess ambassadors: Sheila Xu, Eric Shear, and Mary Cooper. Both Sheila and Eric are members of the deaf community and Mary is a below-the-knee amputee. The crew and AstroAccess ambassadors collaborated with artist and astronaut Dr. Sian Proctor to create four unique paintings during crew teamwork training. This second phase of the Space+5 commercial astronaut program was held in collaboration with the Center for Human Space Exploration at the Biosphere 2, and included spacesuit operations, fire safety, and spacecraft egress over water training procedures for all participants.
